Euphemistically speaking. . .

. . .I suppose Hugh Hewitt is exactly right. He posts a paragraph on Rudy Giuliani's advocacy of the National Catastrophe Fund - a big selling point in Florida politics. John McCain has come out against it, saying that rather than create a whole new program, it would be better to reform FEMA.

So, how does Hewitt describe Romney's position? He says it's "somewhere between Rudy's enthusiastic embrace and McCain's rejection." Is there any nicer way of saying he's waffling?

It's pretty obvious that Romney has been bitten by his tendency to try to be all things to all people. So, in order to avoid making the kind of promises that he knows are going to further cement the image he gained in Michigan as a panderer, or risk alienating potential voters in Florida by telling them what they need to hear, rather than what they want to hear, he punts.

Somewhere between enthusiastic embrace and rejection. That's just about where I stand with Jessica Alba.
